It has been observed that symmetry is a universally accepted characteristic of beauty. We can observe symmetry by dividing the face vertically into thirds, where the nose represents the middle third of the face.
Similarly, if we divide the face horizontally into fifths, we can observe that the nasal width should be approximately equivalent to the width of each eye.
Many individuals who are commonly considered to be attractive have been found to demonstrate near perfect symmetry in their faces. For example, we see that Charlize Theron, recently named the sexiest woman alive, demonstrates exceptional facial symmetry.
Denzel Washington (shown here as a computer rendering), also named one of the sexiest men alive, was calculated to have one of the most symmetrical faces in Hollywood.
